When you swim in the ocean, do you ever wonder what’s lurking below the waves? You know there’s stuff down there. But exactly WHAT is the real question. Well after taking a gander, let me tell you one special fact.
Ignorance is bliss.
Because after seeing these 15 scary crazy sea creatures in action… I may never even take a bath again.
1.) Water Bear
2.) Mola Mola
3.) Red-Lipped Batfish
4.) Ribbon Eel
These actually change genders as they grow up!
5.) Pink See-Through Fantasia
7.) Sarcastic Fringehead
His transparent head shows you his brains!
10.) Goblin Shark
12.) Bobbit Worm
13.) Comb Jellies
The rainbow of colors is not due to bioluminescence, but rather light scattered from the moving cilia used by the comb jellies to move through the water.
This is a colony animal made up of several individuals (called zooids) linked together by a common stem.
These jellyfish look like a UFO and are pretty alien-like because, like most jellies, they do not have digestive, respiratory, circulatory, or central nervous systems.
There are about 60 species of glass squids making them one of the largest families of squid.
Venus Flytrap Sea Anemone
This sea anemone is named after the venus flytrap because of the similar shape and they way it feeds by trapping food in it’s “mouth.”
Flamingo Tongue Snail
The spots you see are not actually on the shell, but are part of the snail’s mantle flesh which covers the shell. Many people collect the snails thinking they will have the spots.
These worms thrive in the super hot water near hydrothermal vents and are one of the most heat-tolerant animals in the world.
Whoa. I wonder what the phobia name for a fear of sea creatures so scary that you’ll cringe at even turning on a faucet is. Something tells me it’s about to get a whole lot more used. I truly wonder how I’ll be able to get to sleep tonight.
